 Happy 70th Birthday, Joe Staton

Friday, January 19, 2018

Though he has drawn almost everything over the course of his incredible career in funny books, I most associate artist Joe Staton with the Green Lantern Corps (especially Guy Gardner).

And, of course, with 1988's Millennium mini-series.

Say what you will about Millennium and its place in DC's steady parade of "no really, this one's important!" events, but at least Millennium reserved a prominent role for Booster Gold in his first big company-wide event. (And then was used as an excuse to cancel his series. So a mixed bag there overall.)

Thanks for helping introduce Booster Gold to the masses, Joe.

 The Weirdest Thing

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

The Blot spotted this on eBay:

Custom Freeny MightyJaxx XXRAY figure on ebay.com

Obviously, this is a custom-painted Green Lantern figure. I'd never seen an XXRAY figure before, so I asked Blot for an explanation.

[Jason] Freeny is a toy artist/customizer who got pretty popular by cutting toys in half and then creating what he thinks their internal structure would look like (bones, organs, etc). Did it to both art figures (like KAWS) as well as pop culture toys like Super Mario or a rubber ducky. Now designer art toy companies produce his designed figures. They've got a whole line of DC Comics XXRAY figures featuring his dissected designs.

So now they make whole lines of "The half-Visible Man" collectible figures? What will they think of next?

 The Blot's Sketchbook: Comicpalooza 2017

Monday, January 15, 2018

I begged The Blot for another peek at his Booster Gold sketchbook, and he finally gave in! Check out these two he picked up at last year's Comicpalooza convention in Houston:

From left to right, that's the work of David Finch and Tony Harris. (Click on either image to see a larger pic in a new window.)

You can see more of The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com.

Thanks, Blot. You're a true Booster booster!
